DIRECTIONS

  • For the Tart Shell:.
  • In Cuisinart, blend all ingredients while adding the butter in quarter-inch pieces.
  • Drizzle in chilled water until dough is thick or holds together when pushing together with fingers.
  • Move dough onto wax paper. Press into 1" thick disk and chill for at least one hour. Then press into 10" tart pan.
  • Line pastry with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until light brown. While still warm, remove parchment paper.
  • Let tart shell rest at room temperature until ready to fill.
  • For the Filling:.
  • Cream butter until fluffy. Mix sugar with cornstarch. Add to butter and cream together.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon juice (it will curdle; this is okay) and grated peel.
  • Pour into a semi-baked 10-inch tart shell and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, or until the filling no longer jiggles.
  • Allow to cool, slice and top with berries if desired.
